Mmmkay you’ve probably read in a few posts lately that my lips have been #chappedAF! So thankfully, MAC Cosmetics has released a new line of lip scrubs called Scrubtious. (I totally would have called it Scrublicious but that’s just me).
There are five different scents/flavours in this permanent line, and I chose Candied Nectar. The box itself is gorgeous with raised MAC logo lettering, definitely a nice departure from the standard flat black boxes.
The packaging is a small tub, a bit taller than Paint Pot but about the same diameter. This is made of glass with an opaque outer coating and a rubberized, airtight lid.
Now let’s talk ingredients, since I have yet to see a full listing anywhere (not even on the MAC site that I could see). Ok here goes: Sucrose, Petrolatum, Jojoba seed oil, Shea butter, Water, Grape seed oil, Baobab seed oil, Rice bran extract, Rosemary leaf extract, Sunflower extract… and now some stuff I can’t pronounce. Tocopherol, Ethylene/Propylene, Styrene copolymer. Flavor.
This has a gritty sugar texture, a lot more coarse than most scrubs. The sugars don’t disintegrate on contact either which gives you a good abrasive scrub.
The scent is very syrup-y and reminds me a bit of apricot or peach nectar. This tastes very sweet, almost like honey, and isn’t too artificial. And my lips after? They feel so smooth!
MAC’s Lip Scrubtious is pretty damn good and only $19 CAD/$16 USD available at MAC, Nordstrom or The Bay (Canada). Get it!
